With Richard Baker. The
Concertgebouw in Amsterdam has perhaps the best acoustics in the world. And like other concert halls built in the late 19th century, it is built in a "shoebox" shape which is now universally accepted as having the best acoustics for symphonic music. The first-ever concert by the resident Concertgebouw Orchestra took place in the Renaissance-style hall and was conducted by Willem Kes. Willem Mengelberg became music director shortly afterwards and stayed there for 50 years.
Richard Baker explores the relationship that Mengelberg had with great composers like Mahler and Strauss.
Roger Nichols continues the survey of music written by Les Six, the group of irreverent composers working in Paris during the first half of the century.
